Clive Palmer still hasn’t put $7 million into a trust fund to pay out the entitlements of sacked Queensland Nickel workers, despite his past promises.

About two weeks ago, Mr Palmer said he’d cover $7.16 million in entitlements still owed to workers who lost their jobs when his nickel business collapsed with massive debts.

Then a week ago, he told reporters the money would be paid into a trust account “today”. But on Monday he said the transfer would be made “tomorrow”.
